WHAT IS MP3 ?

- MP3 (mpeg 2, layer 3) is a digital file format for audio (music).

- You can download MP3 songs from many websites on the internet

(please observe the copyright regulations of your country).

- MP3 songs are much smaller in memory size compared with normal audio format songs.

This is called “compression” & it allows many more files to be stored on a standard memory media device.

- Compression rate is specified in “kbps” (kilobits per second). For example : “128 kbps”: the higher this number, the bigger the MP3 file size (the better the sound quality).

- MP3 songs can be recorded with some “text information” as part of the same file.

It consists of (among other details:)

- File name (song name)

- Artist name

- Your MP3 player can locate (“find”) a song from the “file name”, therefore you should try to name all your MP3 files with the actual name of the song that it contains.

- There are basically 2 ways to place MP3 song files on your memory media device with your favorite songs :

- Download MP3 songs from internet & copy them on your memory media device

on your computer.

- Convert CD-audio files (from a normal music CD) onto your computer into

MP3 format, using a kind software called “CD-Ripper”.

(Which is freeware/shareware on internet).

MEMORY MEDIA DEVICE - MP3 PLAYBACK
